Top Ten Alfred Pennyworth Quotes

Just recently, I made a list of Top Ten Batman Quotes and before that I made lists of Top Ten Bane Quotes and Top Ten Joker Quotes, I’ll probably make similar lists of characters from The Dark Knight Legend, but for now I decided to make a list of my favorite Alfred Pennyworth quotes. It was one of my easier lists to make. As with every character in the greatest story in existence, Pennyworth’s lines are meaningful, eloquent and completely riveting. As I began to appreciate his dialogue, I realized it wasn’t a difficult task to realize which quotes were more important to both me and the story. Alfred was the man responsible for the raising, care and love of Bruce Wayne, the man who would become Batman. The gentle and wise butler whose always been there as a friend and father-figure to the greatest hero in existence is quite the magnificent character.

10. “You have inspired good, but you spat in the faces of Gotham’s worse criminals. Didn’t you think there might be some casualties? Things were always going to get worse before they got better.”

9. “Rachel believed in what you stood for, what we stand for. Gotham needs you.”

8. “I’m so sorry. I failed you. You trusted me and I failed you.”

7. He’s not being a hero. He’s being something more.”

6. I’ve sewn you up, I’ve set your bones, but I won’t bury you. I’ve buried enough members of the Wayne family.”

5. “Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren’t looking for anything logical, like money. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.”

4. “It means your hatred. And it also means losing someone that I have cared for since I first heard his cries echo through this house. But it might also mean saving your life and that is more important.”

3. “Endure, Mr. Wayne. Take it. They’ll hate you for it, but that’s the point of the Batman. He can be the outcast, he can make the choice that no one else can make, the right choice.”

2. “We burned the forest down.”

1. “I never wanted you to come back to Gotham. I always knew there was nothing for you here, except pain and tragedy. And I wanted something more for you than that. I still do.”

Top Ten Batman Quotes

The Joker, Bane and Batman are not just my favorite characters (Top Ten Dark Knight Legend Characters) in my favorite film, The Dark Knight Legend (or Trilogy if that tastes better going down). They’re also my favorite characters in all of movies (Top Ten Movie Characters). I’ve already made lists dedicated to my favorite quotes from The Joker and Bane (Top Ten Joker Quotes, Top Ten Bane Quotes) so I thought, why not? Due to a collaboration between two of the greatest artists working in film, Nolan and Bale, this icon has been established as one of the greatest characters in history. Batman is an inspirational and legendary hero who, through trials and tribulations, has become a defiant symbol for hope and all that is good. These are his best quotes…

10. “Bats frighten me. It’s time my enemies share my dread.”

9. “Perhaps the knife was too slow.”

8. “Tell me where the trigger is, then you have my permission to die.”

7. “You’ll hunt me. You’ll condemn me. Set the dogs on me. Because that’s what needs to happen. Because sometimes truth isn’t good enough. Sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded.”

6. “People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy and I can’t do that as Bruce Wayne. As a man I’m flesh and blood, I can be ignored, I can be destroyed, but as a symbol, as a symbol I can be incorruptible. I can be everlasting.”

5. “It’s not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.”

4. “I’m whatever Gotham needs me to be.”

3. “Not everything. Not yet.”

2. “I won’t kill you, but I don’t I have to save you.”

1. “A hero can be anyone, even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat on a young boy’s shoulders to let him know the world hadn’t ended.”
